Debugging is an Art.

Yes. It's not science. It's fucking ART.

Y'all remember me struggling with the second access point issue?

What I was doing is, updating SSID and Password at the same time and things were crashing.

I decided to go one at a time. I first decided, I will change the password.

So I log into the portal and update the password. Bang!!!! It didn't update.

I try couple of time more and same. Eventually I realised something must be fucked up, so let's try updating SSID.

It got updated and phone/laptop were able to connect to new SSID with old/default router password.

Cool. So issue lies with the password.

Earlier when I updated SSID and password, both system detected the changes in SSID and updated it but didn't update the password. And I was using new SSID/Password to connect and was unable to.

Still don't know how it worked on phone.

But for seamlessness, I still want to same password as my first AP.

So download the router app in the laptop and change the channel from Auto to 2.

Now I use the same SSID/Password as my AP1 but only different here is, channel is 2.

Victory. Celebrations. Hahaha. Everything worked flawlessly.

Password updated. And now SSID/Password for both APs is same.

So I can move between the rooms and enjoy a simple life.

When in doubt, go one step a time to figure out the root cause and think problem to arrive at multiple and better solutions.

A decent start to Monday with my new work space. Let me know if you need pictures.
